I have a feeling that I won't see the Horns or the Astros lose this weekend. The only chance will be Sunday, if the Astros do in fact play that day.
They have the best record in MLB after the All-Star Break and are 14 of their last 15. Last night, Roy O. pithched a complete game....to only 27 batters. We won the wild card coin toss against the only team ahead of us in the Wild Card chase, the Brewers. We now trail them by 3 games.
This club has more late season improbably runs for the playoff than any of which I know.
I will only be in Houston one night for the rest of the season, so I won't make any of the games, but if they make the playoffs, this Dallasite will get playoff tickest (I still gots my season tickets).
Well, I may not make an Astro game, but I am going to the Eagles-Cowboys game on Monday night. That must bother a lot of people who are big Cowboy fans. I'll be sporting green and given support to my man, Super Dave, who is a part-time CPA and part-time Philly Phanatic.
While Dave and I will be chummy on Monday, we may end up rooting against each other in October. If Philly kicks the Brewers' ass this weekend, they will make up ground on the Mets and help the Astros' cause. If we do win the wild card, we can't play the Cubs, so we'll play the Mets/Phillies. F yeah.
On to a little bit of college football. I like South Florida over Kansas tonight. I also think the Horns and Aggies each avoid defeat Saturday. While OU is much better than Washington, this game just seems to have the potential for something whacky (ala the OU-Oregon B.S. penalty game).
My friend Russ pointed out to me today that you can't spell "Friou" without "F. OU". Briliant.
I am taking suggestions for our second IAG SNG. I suggest 1:15 on a Sunday - you tell me which Sunday works. Oh, Junell/Morris - that is 1:15 CENTRAL TIME or 2:15 POKERSTARS time. Dumbasses.
